What is my player's age group?

US Youth soccer has mandated changes to player age groups for the 2016-17 seasonal year and beyond.
Beginning Fall 2016, RYSA  Pre-Academy, Academy and Select teams will be organized by Calendar Year where players born between January 1 to December 31, as opposed to the School Year where age groups are based on the August 1-July 31 dates, will be placed into one age group. With the change, players will still be allowed to "play up" and play in an older age group, based on an individual player's physical, emotional and skills development. The club will continue to place players on teams based on age appropriate level of play and ability.

For the 2016-17 seasonal year, our age groups will align with the following Calendar Year guidelines. 

Birth Year

The RYSA Select Program

The RYSA Select Program (U13-U19) is for players wishing to play at a higher level. The RYSA Select Program provides players with a highly competitive level of play. The RYSA coaching staff evaluates the skills, potential and enthusiasm of each player. A serious commitment is required to participate in the select program. Players are asked to commit to two or three practices per week and one to two games each weekend during the season. Additionally, teams may participate in various tournaments, sometimes traveling out of state. Each Select team at RYSA is coached by a professionally licensed coach.
